Mohit Raina On Mumbai Diaries 26/11: Shares How He Was Inspired By His Father, A Doctor From Day One; Actor Plays Frontline Worker In The Series
Amazon Prime Video's upcoming original series Mumbai Diaries 26/11 is a much-awaited series for audiences owing to its stellar cast, a different side of the 26/11 terror attacks. The recently launched trailer has had the audiences amp up their excitement for this fictional, medical drama series. The impressive trailer of the highly-anticipated original ‘Mumbai Diaries 26/11’ launched recently at Mumbai’s iconic monument The Gateway of India, has been receiving encouraging responses from the viewers who couldn’t stop raving about the fictional edge-of-the-seat medical drama.

Reminiscing being a doctor's son, actor Mohit Raina shared, “I have been very lucky as a kid. My father was a doctor. And he was posted on the outskirts of the villages of Kashmir. At the end of the day, when he used to come back, every night there was a single knock or more on the door of my house because of an emergency and he had to go back to see somebody or the other. He was always eager and ready even at the end of the day also to go and meet the patients and help them.”

He added, “Whenever he would come back, I was fortunate enough to understand from his body language whether he was able to save the patient or help them in his capacity. So I guess I was fortunate enough to see and get inspired by the passion of the frontline workers from day one. And that has probably been showcased in the series as well which I am very fortunate enough to be a part of.”


Created by Nikkhil Advani, produced by Monisha Advani and Madhu Bhojwani of Emmay Entertainment, and jointly directed by Nikkhil Advani along with Nikhil Gonsalves, the series depicts the untold story of doctors, nurses, paramedics and hospital staff who worked tirelessly to save lives during the terror attacks that devastated the city on November 26.

The series features an array of talented artists, including Konkona Sen Sharma, Mohit Raina, Tina Desai, Shreya Dhanwanthary, Satyajeet Dubey, Natasha Bharadwaj, Mrunmayee Deshpande and Prakash Belawadi.

Mumbai Diaries 26/11 premieres exclusively and globally on Amazon Prime Video on September 9, 2021.
